“Excellent hotel in Bologna”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We stayed in this hotel for just one night on our way home, and therefore we didn't make use of all the amenities of this hotel, But we will surely be back to see Bologna, and then we look forward to use the lovely outdoors pool. The hotel was easy to find, a short distance from the Motorway, and the parking place was spacious. The service was excellent. The room was quiet, spacious and well equipped, and the restaurant met all our needs. The breakfast was very good

Stayed here for two nights with 2 rooms for family and kids. We got adjoining rooms which we had requested. Rooms were great and seemed to have been newly renovated; in particular the bathrooms had new Hans Grohe fixtures. Over and above expectations for a Novotel. Breakfast was fine, nothing out of the ordinary. The staff was helpful and attentive for the most part but we went down to have a drink in the evening and waited 5 mins to place and order. As they were unsure if they had the wine we wanted they went to check and never returned! Poor service. We also used the pool which was nice but far too few beach chairs. we had to haul chairs from the restaurant to sit in.

The hotel is close to the airport on the plus side but you need a taxi to get into the city. Not a great location for tourists.

This hotel offers excellent value for money. It is very clean, with good comfortable rooms. Despite being very close to the main roads, we heard no road noise at all (our room was facing the main road) and the air conditioning made our stay very comfortable. The hotel has excellent facilities for families - a lovely big and very clean pool (with towels provided at the poolside), an outdoor and indoor play area for younger children, and two different computer games consoles. The outstanding feature of this particular Novotel for us, were the exceptionally friendly staff - most speaking excellent English, but all very keen to help. Despite being slightly out of the centre of Bologna, it was only a short taxi ride into town (costing around 10 euros) - and reception staff always called for a taxi which arrived within a few minutes. The selection at breakfast was good - the only negative regarding our entire nine night stay was that breakfast closed at 9.30am on weekdays, which was a little too early for us. Extended breakfast at weekends until 11am was good - perhaps weekdays could be extended to 10am. Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel and would be more than happy to stay there again.

Spent three days there in a family room for less than 200 EUR breakfast included which is a very competitive price compared with other places in Italy.
A bit from city center (around 5 km) but could be reached by taxi.
Rooms are good, breakfast also nice, and a very small fitness but ok. Pool is very good with various facilities for kids like table tennis etc

A decent hotel in the business district. Clean and comfortable and quiet - my key three requirements when on business.

Hotel staff werer pleasant and spoke pretty good English. Organised a taxi and gave me some free water.

I missed breakfast so no comment there!

Very comfortable, clean and airy as you would expect from a Novotel. Nice and quiet at night. We chose it because of the pool, always welcome at the end of a day sightseeing. The pool was a good size and very pleasant terrace beside it where you can sit with a drink. Bar staff friendly. One negative was no pool towel supplied, you had to use your room one. Easy taxi ride to town and airport but gets expensive if you go in and out for the day then the evening, although only 3km, walking or local bus not an option as would have to negotiate busy slip roads with no pavements.

Room very clean, light and large, quiet at night and beds comfortable. Service excellent and staff really helpful. Food in restaurant very good. Whilst some way out of city (in business area) it proved a very good base for trips into city and on to Ravenna by train. Journey to airport or city centre by taxi approx. 11- 14 Euros - not suitable for walking to city. Would certainly stay again.
